“My Type of Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

My hubby and I visited your Inn for a quick honeymoon (he has never seen NY). I wanted a quaint place that had a bed and breakfast type of feel. Chelsea Pines provided just what this honeymooner ordered.

The best feature is the customer service, 24 hours and no task is too small or took great, including carrying my 50 lb. luggage up 5 flights of stairs!! What I really enjoyed was the aesthetics. I happen to direct theater and classic movies is one of my passions. Imagine my delight to find Hollywood décor throughout each floor with each room named after a Hollywood starlet complete with movie posters. Other great features were the location, every thing you need including fabulous restaurants are within blocks away. The courtyard was lovely and the perfect place for you to enjoy coffee anytime as well as the freshest breakfast, breads, and pastries. Yes, we would go back in a heartbeat and highly recommend. One tip, if you are nt in shape for those stairs, ask for a lower level room ( :

Room Tip: No elevators, so choose your flight limit.

We were sure we would like Chelsea Pines Inn because we found it after an accurate search. Beautiful, trendy, informal neighbourhood: between Chelsea, Meatpacking district and the Village, a few steps from a Metro line, 5 minutes from the High Line, nice restaurants, unique shops. The Inn: a rich breakfast, very comfortable beds, a charming setting. Positive ratings everywhere. What we couldn't imagine in advance, and discovered with great pleasure, is the extreme friendliness, and helpfulness of the whole staff. The owner Jay, Louis, Rumel, just to mention some of them, really do their best to make people feel at home! We felt pampered, definitely. Great job guys!

We could not choose a better place to celebrate our 30st anniversary. Following a web advice we asked a room on the garden, it was absolutely great, quiet. We were on 4th floor but we dit not care, we were so glad to come "back home" every nigths. We really felt like home at Chelsea Pines Inn.
A very welcoming staff, nice, attentive, as efficient as discrete, you can ask them whatever you want or need, they'll do their best to satisfy you : we love them all, from Jay to Charlie :-))
Room is confortable, nice, well equipped (iron, safe, fridge, hair dryer...) well decorated and very very clean (the all place is quite clean).
A day at Chelsea Pines Inn starts with a delicious and generous breakfast in the kitchen or in the garden, (thank you Jay for your delicious fresh breads), reading the Chelsea Morning. When you come back you can rest in the garden with fresh drink and some snack, after you shared your NYC experience with someone at the lobby.
Everything is meant to make you feel well and happy, a lot of details give class and gentleness to this place : flowers in your room upon arrival, a welcoming handwritten note and the day before you leave a little surprise, come and you'll see.
And of course, the inn is very well located, closed to the Highline, Chelsea Market, subway, a very nice and lively district, full of restaurants, bars, gallery and nice streets.
And please don't put bad rating because of the stairs, it's healthy, really.
If we come back in NYC we'll stay again at Chelsea Pines Inn, where else ?
Thank you Jay and everybody at Chelsea Pines Inn, take care.

Chelsea Pines seems a name better suited for some mountain retreat, but I can vouch for the fact that their courtyard garden, itself a great find in this city, boasts real live fireflies on a summer evening! Put your bags down, help yourself to a nice glass of wine and some cheese and crackers courtesy of the management and see for yourself!
While the rooms here are small, that is the norm for NYC. They are however spotlessly clean, very quiet, and designed to make you fell right at home.
But as so many others have mentioned, it is the staff here that ultimately make all the difference. No pretense, just a great group who know how to make you feel welcome and at ease, something those of us who are new to this city must surely appreciate.

We stayed at the Chelsea Pines Inn for the 3rd time last month.It is our home away from home and the staff is awesome! A wonderful breakfast and cold water and tea all day. It is near the highline park and chelsea market. The subway is at the next corner, 4 minute ride to time square!
The owner, Jay, was out of town, but Louis and the staff really took care of us. Can't wait to return!

I've stayed at Chelsea Pines Inn perhaps 10 times over the past decade, with my most recent visit last month (June 2014). I always have an excellent stay at Chelsea Pines. It is in some ways similar to a bed and breakfast, which one does not expect to find in Manhattan. Firstly, an excellent breakfast spread is provided, including a home-baked specialty bread, croissants and bagels, fine cheese, fruit, and many more options. Coffee, tea, and a light snack are also available throughout the day in the breakfast/brunch area, which also includes a few tables in a courtyard behind the hotel. Breakfast is also a nice opportunity to socialize a bit with some of the other travelers staying there; or if one wishes, you can just relax over the New York Times or magazines that the hotel provides in the dining area.

I should also mention that the rooms are spotless, comfortable, well-laid-out, and of course nicely decorated with vintage movie posters, I also find the location is ideal--it's about 50 yards from the 14th street station of the 8th Avenue subway lines; from there, it's one or two express stops to midtown, and only a few stops in the opposite direction to lower Manhattan or to Brooklyn. Some days when I'm there, however, I don't take public transportation, as there are many interesting shops, art galleries, and music clubs (all types) within easy walking distance. It's also only a couple of blocks from Chelsea Market, the High Line Park, and the park area that runs along the Hudson River (very nice place for running or biking).

Everyone on the staff is helpful in a multitude of ways, from helping with one's luggage, to facilitating transportation to the airport, to restaurant and event recommendations. As someone who usually travels solo, I am especially appreciative of the genuine warmth and friendliness of the owner, Jay, and his staff--particularly on this last visit, Troy and Rumel.

I am already looking forward to my next visit to Chelsea Pines Inn.

Very friendly, helpful and thoughtful staff, always available for any type of information. The rooms / bathrooms are not very large but clean and nicely decorated. Very nice and fresh breakfast (charming patio) and we appreciated the possibility to take a small snack in the kitchen after a long day sightseeing...
It is a very peaceful and convenient place to stay when visiting the city, much more charming than a big hotel! We definitely recommend this place.
